Pakistan’s government has never really focused its efforts on improving the public health sector. This has created an opportunity for innovative companies to try and improve the local healthcare system on their own. One such software company is Aurora Solutions, which is trying to simplify the healthcare system for doctors and patients through its new product called Pliro.
